Notes: Imperial Stout with Maple, Coffee, Cocoa Butter, Cinnamon, and Madagascar & Tahitian Vanilla

We are the tortured and the delighted. The beings of calm in the pall of blanketing darkness. And our penchant resides in an immersive illusion that we shall always be reminded of the shadow hiding from the light. Upon the tide of seven passings. These pages shall once again be filled with lore. A vegan-friendly adventure layered in the lap of a quite intense overindulgence, we find ourselves digging through Maple Marshmallow Ice Cream with Tiramisu Cake and White Chocolate Crumble. What chaos indeed, as we set sail on the eighth.

Released 6/18/20; drank 6/25/20 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A rough pour yielded a nice tan head; decent lace.

Maple, vanilla, chocolate & medium roast coffee bean notes in the nose.

Thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Milk chocolate, medium roast coffee bean & vanilla flavors up front; mild cinnamon bite on the finish. I'm not a big cinnamon fan, so this wasn't quite perfect, but you could do a LOT worse in the pastry stout game.

A nice beer.

Poured from a bottle into a plastic tumbler

L: rich, dark oil black brown with a small dark brown head that fades quickly. No real lacing, some legs

S: coffee, immediately and in your face (in a good way). Behind that a really nice, deep chocolate aroma with cinnamon spice and some maple sweetness. Some vanilla lurking there as well, very dessert but not overly sweet

T: follows the nose very well, excellent coffee and chocolate with a slightly sweet maple note in the middle. Cinnamon gives it a bit more complexity, and the vanilla rounds it out well. A very full and flavorful stout, but impressively balanced. Think the best burial stout I’ve had, decadent but all the adjuncts play well. Medium/long finish

F: light carbonation, medium/thick body, pretty smooth and appropriately viscous

O: best stout I’ve had from burial, balance and flavor is excellent across the board
